I can not imagine navigating my labor and delivery without Kaely.
She was knowledgable and effective while also being caring and supportive. From our first meeting, she was an absolute professional. She supported my husband and I by providing resources, posing questions, and staying in constant contact even after COVID turned the world upside down. Kaely's commitment showed that she cared.
During labor, she made sure our desires became reality. We had no idea how important it would be to have another person in the room that was solely focused on supporting us. We were lucky to have Kaely to take on this role.
We whole-heartedly recommend Kaely and her doula services.
We could not recommend Kaely more highly! She was extremely supportive, knowledgeable and a very understanding person. We hired Kaely a few weeks prior to our due date, but she made each day count! Her services helped both of us feel more confident, well-informed, and overall well-prepared for our labor and delivery as first time parents. She was willing to work with us on every request we had, and she was super understanding of our situation. We will definitely recommend Kaely to our friends, family or anyone else looking for a doula.
Kaely was our doula during a very uncertain time, as COVID was reaching peak levels and hospital policies were changing daily. I'm so thankful she was able to be in the delivery room with me!! Even though my husband was also with me, neither of us would have known the techniques for physically and mentally getting through labor. Kaely was very attentive, supportive, and encouraging. Her care for me and my husband included two at-home visits where she walked us through a detailed birth plan, stretches to induce labor, and comfort techniques during labor. For weeks after my delivery she checked in on us and provided tons of resources for nursing when I was having issues. Having a good doula like Kaely helped make my delivery and postpartum period more calm and peaceful than they otherwise would have been. Cannot recommend her more highly!!
Hiring Kaely was the absolute best thing we did to prepare for the birth of our baby. As first time parents, we had a lot of questions and insecurities about the process that she helped us navigate. She’s super knowledgeable, supportive and easy going. We were on the fence about hiring a doula, but now I don’t know what I would’ve done without her!
Kaely made me feel calm during my second childbirth experience.While this wasn’t our first child, it was our first time having a child thousands of miles from our family. She was able to support me during labor with pain management techniques and also helped my husband help me so he could be a part of it. She was also extremely helpful in the postpartum period as she gave advice and tips on how to start breastfeeding on the right foot and how to recover well.
Kaely is a dear friend of mine! She is a wonderful mother, wife, lactation consultant and doula! You may wonder how a dear friend might function as a labor and delivery doula, I don't think many people could do this well at all, too many dynamics at plat... but, NOT so for KAELY! She was all that my husband and I didn't know we needed- a calm comforter, supporter, cheerleader and advocate (and photographer!) I had been laboring at home most of the day and after checking in with Kaely throughout the day, letting her know my progress, and just as we'd planned, she came over to my house in the evening and helped me through the later stages of labor, packing up the car and making the 30 minute drive with my husband and I to the hospital. When we arrived I was 7 cm dilated. Kaely helped to relieve the pressure of contractions, keep me comfortable while stuck to the monitor and warded off the unhelpful nurses when they couldn't believe I wouldn't have an IV, didn't want another cervical exam and refused to lie on my back. She didn't flinch when a contraction got a little intense and I got a little loud in her ear as she supported me :) She was a huge help to my husband so he could focus on the baby and me. I could go on and on. She is so easy to talk to, has a huge heart, loves what she does and knows her stuff! She is wise, she knows when and how to advocate, she is a treasure and I recommend her to anyone I know looking for a doula!
